Ricketts said he was used to fans coming up to him, asking when the Cubs were going to win a World Series. But all of those parties paled in comparison to the Cubs rally, CBS Chicago reported.

"I appreciate the opportunity to join the D-Backs family", Lovullo said in a statement.

During the jubilant festivities at the park, 39-year-old retiring Cubs catcher David Ross posed for a selfie in front of a multitude of roaring fans.

"We started to realize if they won the World Series, we might not be able to handle the volume", said DeSimone. I want to congratulate you fans also. The parade in Chicago will begin at Wrigley Field and end with a pep rally at Grant Park. She said she believes her lucky charms helped reverse the curse.

Before the rally, throngs of young and old blue-clad fans roared as the motorcade of open-roofed buses carrying the players cruised along Lake Shore Drive.

Atop the double-decker buses, some Cubs players posed together for photos, while others held their children and sat with their families.

"We've asked asked a lot of you, and we put you through a lot over the last five years - 101 losses, trading players you've come to know and love for guys you've never heard of, trading 40 percent of the rotation three years in a row, asking you guys to follow the draft and follow the minor leagues", Epstein said. He said, "For the thousands of people who have said that to me, 'There you go'".

Even the Chicago River, which is dyed green annually for Saint Patrick's Day, was coloured swimming-pool blue in honour of the Cubs' team colour.
